Walk on water. Blast balls into orbit. Defy gravity.

In 2016, the World Science Festival and Con Edison launched City of Science, an initiative that attracted over 20,000 people across New York City’s five boroughs to explore the wondrous properties of science, technology, engineering, and math. Filled with interactive demonstrations, hands-on activities, and larger-than-life exhibitions, this free event unleashes everyone’s inner scientist.

2017 and 2018 dates coming soon!
